Frenchboro Harbor Navigation Project

Frenchboro Harbor

Frenchboro Harbor in Frenchboro, known locally as Lunt Harbor, is a shallow, narrow cove located on the northwest side of Long Island, about 20 miles south of Bar Harbor. The harbor is principally a fishing port and serves as a ferry terminal connecting the island with Mount Desert Island, which is connected to the mainland by a highway bridge.

The project, completed in 1977, consists of a 10-foot-deep anchorage, five acres in area, in the outer harbor; a six-foot-deep anchorage, 1.5 acres in area, in the inner harbor; and a six-foot-deep channel, 75 feet wide, connecting the two anchorages.
